F1: Azerbaijan Grand Prix – live!

No battle for third between Ferrari’s cars as instead Vettel pits to change his tyres, which is done quickly in under three second, and Leclerc takes his place.

The start is just moments away in the 1001st F1 grand prix as the streets of Baku take the strain of 51 laps over 3.7 miles of a track.

Just before the Azeri anthem gets an airing for what is a most Eurovision rendition, Valtteri Bottas has his say on the race, and enter the business bingo sphere.

The rest of the contenders have had an indifferent weekend so far with Charles Leclerc’s Ferrari crashing out, though teammate Sebastian Vettel is sat in third.
